World’s smallest walking robot is thumb sized
Human shaped Robo-Q, measuring 3.4 cm high, not bigger than a thumb has been released in Japan. This world’s smallest robot can not only play football but also dodge unexpected obstacles and find its way out of a maze. All this possible for Robo-Q as it is fitted with artificial intelligence enabling it to navigate and play games and built in sensors. The two-legged micro robot, which is available in four different colours, will be sold in Japan from next February for $35. This miniature creature was one of the 100 different types of robots being displayed at Robo Japan 2008 in Yokohama.
